This is the first of two workshops on reproducibility in science, during which participants are introduced to concepts of FAIR and open science. After discussing the definition of and need for FAIR science, participants are walked through tutorials on installing and using Github and Docker, the powerful, open-source tools for versioning and publishing code and software, respectively.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Speaker: : Erin Dickie and Sejal Patel

This is a hands-on tutorial on PLINK, the open source whole genome association analysis toolset. The aims of this tutorial are to teach users how to perform basic quality control on genetic datasets, as well as to identify and understand GWAS summary statistics.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Speaker: : Dan Felsky

This lesson breaks down the principles of Bayesian inference and how it relates to cognitive processes and functions like learning and perception. It is then explained how cognitive models can be built using Bayesian statistics in order to investigate how our brains interface with their environment.

This lesson corresponds to slides 1-64 in the PDF below.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Speaker: : Andreea Diaconescu

This is a tutorial on designing a Bayesian inference model to map belief trajectories, with emphasis on gaining familiarity with Hierarchical Gaussian Filters (HGFs).

This lesson corresponds to slides 65-90 of the PDF below.

This lesson goes over the basic mechanisms of neural synapses, the space between neurons where signals may be transmitted.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 7:03

Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

While the previous lesson in the Neuro4ML course dealt with the mechanisms involved in individual synapses, this lesson discusses how synapses and their neurons' firing patterns may change over time.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 4:48

Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 3:51

Speaker: : Dan Goodman

This lesson characterizes different types of learning in a neuroscientific and cellular context, and various models employed by researchers to investigate the mechanisms involved.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 3:54

Speaker: : Dan Goodman

In this lesson, you will learn about different approaches to modeling learning in neural networks, particularly focusing on system parameters such as firing rates and synaptic weights impact a network.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 9:40

Speaker: : Dan Goodman

This lesson describes spike timing-dependent plasticity (STDP), a biological process that adjusts the strength of connections between neurons in the brain, and how one can implement or mimic this process in a computational model. You will also find links for practical exercises at the bottom of this page.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 12:50

Speaker: : Dan Goodman

In this lesson, you will learn about some of the many methods to train spiking neural networks (SNNs) with either no attempt to use gradients, or only use gradients in a limited or constrained way.
